Stayed here for 5 nights. The room was well set out with a desk, large tv, arm chair, comfortable bed and a lovely big balcony that had a great view of Parliament House. The air conditioning worked well for the hot days we experienced and it was centrally located both to ANU and the shops.
However, given we were paying almost $200 a night the cleanliness of the bathroom in particular left a lot to be desired throughout our stay. The floor hadn't been swept prior to our arrival and nor was it on any of the days that we were there. The basin did not drain well and there was a lack of ventilation as well which was a nuisance. Additionally, paying $29 a night for wifi was also steep and i had to call the main service centre twice to fix the connection remotely.
Room service was very good and i ordered the salmon which was delicious. Check out was a breeze and Robert on reception was very helpful in printing my boarding pass for my flight. The other boy on reception that we encountered during check in could definitely use a few pointers from him.
Overall an ok stay but a few improvements are needed.

Our 205 guest suites are kitted out with designer decor and all the business savvy mod cons we know you need to get the job done. Expect a seamless technology offering and a team geared to assist you with any left-field requests. ... more less
